When Institutions Of Care Don't Care

As the nation's population ages, especially as the baby boomer generation reaches retirement age and beyond, the need for nursing home care continues to rise. When you entrust a loved one to the care of these facilities, you hope that the staff treats your loved one with the care and respect that he or she deserves.

Alarmingly, abuse and neglect are far more common than most facilities care to admit. If you believe that your loved one is being neglected or abused by nursing home staff in Alpharetta or a surrounding north Atlanta suburb, you need to speak up and obtain counsel immediately. Any delay in doing so can leave your loved one in peril, so do not delay.

We provide free initial consultations. Learn more about our services here.

In nursing home abuse and neglect cases, our clients partner with attorney Jim Green through every stage of their claims. Jim is a well-known trial lawyer who has spent more than 25 years protecting the rights of injured clients and their families.

Forms Of Nursing Home Abuse And Neglect

Misconduct on the part of nursing home staff can take many forms, including:

  • Physical abuse
  • Failing to provide adequate nutrition
  • Allowing nursing home residents to become severely dehydrated
  • Failing to rotate nursing home residents in bed, resulting in bedsores
  • Lack of supervision, which allows residents to leave the nursing home unattended (sometimes called elopement) and potentially suffer injury

If you suspect that your loved one has suffered these or any other types of abuse or neglect, take immediate action.
